Not a single person, citizen, taxpayer, landowner who spoke or asked questions during the meeting sounded positive in any way, shape, form or fashion about any part of this proposal. With little to go on, these local people shot holes in the plan from almost every angle anyway.
I have known Phil Johnson and Sam (Martin) Hay III for most of my life, and I totally agree with their opposition to the county's "so called" 2050 Plan. I view this plan as a direct attack on an individual's freedom and liberty. I have raised my right hand twice, and each time I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

There is something strange about a government that can't balance its budget, giving something away "free" that people only buy if there is a subsidy involved – at the production, consumption and use levels.
Harry L. Long's letter to the Editor on Friday, July 26 disturbs me greatly.
Barbara Morgan meanders all over the world to finally arrive at the real reason for her attempt to educate those with opposing political viewpoints than her gospel. Using almost two columns (July 19) she describes the beauty of colors and attempts to define those colors discernible to the human eye. Thankfully she did not extend this treat to angstroms and the expressions of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation and pure spectral colors.
